My Longest Valentine

Like most little girls, my Valentine growing up was always my Dad. He would bring my mom roses and for his mini-sized Valentine, he would bring me a small heart shaped box of chocolates and a Disney card. At 28 years, he's been my longest Valentine. =)

For his card this year, I wanted to make something sparkly and eye catching.

Martha Stewart's Valentine's Day pack came with so many different kinds of paper so I used the Create a Critter 2 cartridge to cut out some glittery hearts. I had some ribbon left over from Christmas time so I used it to hang the Valentines. I was going to stamp a sentiment, but then I actually just liked this as it was. I'm trying to learn exactly when to just stop with a card before it becomes too cluttered.

My Daddy-o!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges-
